               Centuries back, a widow used to live in a village. That cruel widow was black magician. She had a daughter. He was man eater and used to perform black magic with the help of human flesh.
       The black magician used to be in search of parentless children. She used to catch such child and put into her bag. Then she used to perform black magic by killing child by thumping in mortar.
            One day, the widow black magician was gone for searching orphan child in grazing grass field.  There she saw a child was grazing cattle alone in the grazing filed. He was Dukhanya an orphan child.
  She jumped for Dukhnya. She was put Dukhanya into bag. His friends saw that the old woman putting their friend into her bag.
            Through other path, the friends of Dukhanya came before black magician. They wanted to help her to carry her bag. She agreed and she gave them that bag. Children freed Dukhanya and put mud into bag. After some time, they returned her bag to widow black magician. While taking the bag on her shoulder she felt water. She thought that Dukhanya was urinating. She told,” Tyar mutan matan mi Ghaur I dikhul. I will take revenge for your urinating.”
   When the widow opened the bag she was annoyed to see mud.
           Second time, she went to grazing field and caught Dukhanya and put him into her bag. Again the children asked her to ahnd over the bag for helping her and they put yellow bee in place of Dukhanya. On the way, yellow bite her. She told,” teri chungi mi ghauram I dikhlu. I will see your pinching me.”
       She was angry to see yellow bee inside bag instead of Dukhanya.
          Third time, she caught Dukhanya, put him into bag but she did not hand over the bag to his friends.
  She put the bag into her store room and went to fetch water. By any means, Dukhanya came out of bag. In the mean time, daughter of woman black magician came into room. Dukhanya requested her to enter into bag. Dukhanya closed the bag and came out of store room.
 When widow came it was dark. She hit the bag by club and killed her daughter. When she opened the bag and found that she killed her own daughter. Facing the realities, the widow also died there only. The cruel widow got tit for tat.
